Hello! I am the UWM/MATC Transfer Specialist at the University of Wisconsin-MIlwaukee. I am available to answer student questions about the transfer process, transferable credit, and planning the best classes at Milwaukee Area Technical College to eventually apply to a UW-Milwaukee degree.

During the fall/spring semesters I am located at the MATC Downtown campus two days a week – Wednesday and Thursday (Thursdays only for the summer months of June - August) and all other days at my UWM campus location. I also attend MATC Transfer Days during the fall and spring semesters as well as hold individual advising sessions at the other 3 MATC campuses (Mequon, Oak Creek & West Allis) during the academic school year and other outreach activities.

I thoroughly enjoy and very much dedicated to working with prospective students in taking their next “educational step” from class choice options to the admission application process towards a Bachelor’s degree at UW- Milwaukee. Contact me today; it’s never too early to start the planning process!
